Few know that twenty to thirty thousand Native Americans fought in the Civil War. This outstanding DVD presents the largely untold story of the First Americans' role in the War Between the States.
The common view of the Civil War is very black-and-white: North vs. South, rural vs. urban, slaveholders vs. abolitionists. But, from the conflict's origins to the complicated progression of its major events, the truth is far murkier and more complex. This immensely illuminating documentary from THE HISTORY CHANNEL™ clarifies one particularly muddy but fascinating aspect of the time: how Indians reacted to and participated in the Civil War.
Discover notable Native American combatants like Ely Parker, Stand Waite, and Henry Berry Lowery. Then go beyond the scholarship and visit with descendants of Indian Civil Warrior soldiers, hearing the family lore of their ancestors' exploits. Far more than just a "White Man's Folly," learn the very personal reasons that drew these Native Americans into the fray.
